Luce Artist Biography

Olaf Skoogfors was influenced by his father’s career in engineering and was a self-proclaimed “constructivist by inclination.” He enjoyed building his compositions directly in metal, producing light-reflecting assemblages in gold-plated silver. He drew imagery from nature and from Scandinavian, Benin, pre-Columbian, Celtic, and Viking traditions.
